As the group rest (or try to) for the night nothing sinister approaches them from the cave entrance... however, the same couldn’t be said for the pool of water at the back of the cavern.
Silently the circular pool begins to ripple and bubble, and from out of it raises a long muscular clawed arm. It clings to the surrounding basalt columns, followed by a second arm and then a head and shoulders - as whatever was emerging from the water pulled itself out.
It was quite gangly, humpbacked and short with hairy grey skin, yellow eyes, knotty black hair and a long jutting jaw with rows of spiky teeth... a goblin.
As it finished crawling out from the pool it was quickly joined by a few friends, all slick with water and grinning at one another menacingly.
With a nod and a few hand gestures they quietly crept toward the sleeping travellers, their dirty loin cloths trailing behind them. They’d clearly done this before.
One drooling goblin leaned over Serenity pointing at her and licking it’s lips hungrily - he’d picked a nice big juicy one.
A couple reached their long black claws towards Cate and Andrew intending to stab them while they slept.
Another opened its hideous mouth and stooped (intending) to bite Daemon’s neck.
A brave goblin used one long finger to lift Bellah’s hood (to have a peek at its prey), whilst it’s lanky friend sniffed Aster’s head. Another was carefully stretching out one of Gemma’s (yummy) wings.
The Metals were surrounded too, as a few creeping goblins moved in to (attempt to) eat them.
One goblin was looking inside Erras mouth as he slept/snored with his head back. Maybe it would eat his tongue first.
Another goblin loomed over Danivere. It’s long taloned hands making their way to wrap around her throat.
Genii was wrapped up like a burrito, so a goblin grabbed him by a boot and got ready to bite off a leg.
The creatures smirked at one another, then got ready to slash, chomp, strangle (or bite something off) in one unified attack - in five, four, three, two....
((Sorry if I’ve missed anyone. They haven’t seen Makna yet. I don’t know where Jet, Hanako etc. would be, but they look tasty so I’m sure the goblins will find them.))
